MTV’s The Real World’s Davis Mallory is getting ‘Loud’ this spring with the release of his purrrrfect title track from his new album.
‘Loud‘ is an upbeat summer dance song about hooking up with someone you quietly desire. It’s seductive R&B with a funky, chilled, head-swinging vibe and sex-soaked lyrics; much in the way of Zayn’s “Pillowtalk.” Davis calls it his Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On”.
“It’s a bit outside of the norm of what I usually write and sing about,” he admits. “It was inspired by a guy, another singer-songwriter, who I had a major crush on. At the time, I couldn’t figure out how he felt about me.”
The erotic intensity of “Loud” is reflected in the song’s music video. Davis dances provocatively with leggy models while holding leashed men in cat masks. In addition to taking listeners on an unexpected journey into fetish, the video emphasizes his passion for felines. His Himalayan cat, Xena, appears in the video.
“I’m a Leo and have always gravitated towards lions and cats,” he says. “I embody a lot of the qualities attributed to Leos. I’m loyal, creative, independent and strategic in the way a lion hunts. When I fall for someone, its pretty intense.”
Sadly, Davis’ crush turned out to be straight. Dude even has a girlfriend now. Next!
Two remixes of have already been released: the first by Los Angeles-based producer BPT and a second by Miami-based producer Landis, on Cedric Gervais’ Delecta Records.
